BFA - Indigenous Art (Art History/Museum Studies)

Bachelor of Fine Arts - Indigenous Art (Art History/Museum Studies)

Prepare to succeed in the complex and evolving global dialogue about Indigenous art history and contemporary art practices. Combine studies in Native American culture, and Art History/Museum Studies with extensive practical experience.

The dynamic curriculum showcases courses in contemporary First Nations art, Canadian art history, European art practices from the 19th-21st centuries, and critical issues in museum studies. Pick from a range of Native American Studies courses, which offer in-depth engagement with Aboriginal issues, and take Art Studio courses that provide first-hand understanding of art techniques and materials.

Our internship program gives you an in-depth sense of the range of work and career possibilities in the museum field while developing your experience beyond the art gallery and classroom. You have the opportunity to focus on specific areas including exhibitions, collections, and public programming.

What Can I Do With My Major?



Know your calendar year

Remember that program requirements vary depending on the calendar year, which is usually the year of admission to uLethbridge. Therefore requirements may differ from year to year, even within the same major.

For questions about this or changing calendar years speak with an advisor.




A minor is a good way to complement your major, have your interests in another subject area recognized on your official transcript, and expand your employment opportunities. It is an optional component of your degree program that requires a smaller number of courses to complete.
